Master Bedroom ReDesign: Inspiration Board

I have been trying to come up with ways to see the big picture for each room that I would like to redo or to add some new features. I was getting way too overwhelmed with thinking of all the things I would like to do to our house. There is literally something in each room, even the closets. So, instead of trying to overwhelm myself and not start anywhere I figured I would make my self an inspiration board. Plus, I am trying to sell the ideas I have in my head to my hubby and if he doesn't see it he may not know what I am talking about.


Right now, my bedroom is dark and dreary and doesn't have too much going on. There is an ochre color on the walls with a pearlescent paint techinque that overlays the ochre. It's pretty with the shimmer of a light or a candle in the evening. Then we have traditional style furniture, a queen size bed, dresser with a mirror and a tallboy dresser. Our bed linens are plain...right now all I have is my down comforter on the bed. I had my beautiful waterford silk damask duvet and pillows, but I was tired of it and it wasn't practical or versatile for sleeping. Also, there is no art on the walls and our lamps are simply from my college dorm days. It's time for something new and I am tired of leaving each room unfinished.

So here is my inspiration for my master bedroom...
First, I would love to put up board and batten around the whole room. It is so elegant and it reminds me of a craftsman style home. For the color above the board and batten, I would like a gray tone...here are some different gray hues that I like....

These are all colors from Restoration Hardware...I believe the top one is slate and the bottom one is graphite. The ones in the middle are a myriad of all of them. Even the lighter color is nice, but I am not sure the name of it.
Here are the bed linens I love...I would like a belgian linen. It does not have to have a pattern on it, it can be solid, but I love the subtleness of the pattern. I also love the quilt that would be used as an accent piece on the bed or used for cold evenings. My inspiration comes from Restoration Hardware's Belgian Linen Collections.

For throw pillows...I woud like to have something like this...

I love all of these pillows! I think the first set gives more of that elegance and the others bring a relaxed sense to the space. Keep in mind, I just like the "our nest" pillow and not the ones behind it.

My linen inspiration...I love the colors in this, but I am not sure of the pattern. I think it may be too contemporary for the space I am going for. I do love them though...but just think of the colors...the next few pictures are more of what I was looking for in style.

Then for the bedside tables....I would like to accent them with these lamps and accessories...
The lamp inspiration is from Pottery Barn and the milk glass vases were found on etsy.
I would love to have a nice chair in one of the corners of the room...my inspiration is this chair...not sure where I found this though...
As for the rest of the furniture, it will be a lighter wood, but not sure yet.

Let me know your thoughts and hopefully I can start somewhere....
